Gem Gem Gem CircleCI Test Coverage Maintainability

Kitchen-Pulumi is a collection of Test-Kitchen plugins for testing Pulumi-based cloud infrastructure projects under the test-driven infrastructure paradigm. With Kitchen-Pulumi you can provision ephemeral test stacks, verify they are in a desired state using InSpec, and tear them down to gain confidence in your infrastructure code before it hits production.


Kitchen-Pulumi provides a Kitchen driver, provisioner, and verifier which collectively support the following features:

  • Language-agnostic: Create and test Pulumi stacks in any of their supported languages.
  • Backend-agnostic: Use the Pulumi SaaS backend, a local backend, or your organization's internal backend.
  • Configurable: Easily define/override stack config values in your .kitchen.yml file for flexible testing across environments or scenarios.
  • Test changes over time: Simulate changes in stack config values over time to test how your infrastructure reacts to ever-shifting user-provided values.
  • Custom state verification: Code any validation logic you desire, provided it can be ran within an InSpec profile.

If there's a feature you would like to see in Kitchen-Pulumi, please create an issue with the suggested feature and its intended use case.

# Gemfile

gem 'kitchen-pulumi'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:
